Trump’s Highly Successful Jewish Outreach Program

Well, after insulting nearly everyone else, it was the Jews’ turn (boldface mine):

On Thursday, Republican front-runner Donald Trump delivered a speech before the Republican Jewish Coalition in which he essentially praised members of the organization for being a bunch of Shylocks.

“Stupidly, you want to give me money,” he began. But he added that “you’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money,” suggesting that Jews are unwilling to back people whose purse-strings they can’t control, a classic anti-Semitic trope.

In his humble way, he spoke of how much the Jews love him, especially in Israel. “They look at my wall, and it’s loaded up” with awards from Jewish groups, he boasted, before adding that “the Christians are catching up, though, they’re catching up.”

Trump spoke about the infamous $43 million gas station in Afghanistan, asking the crowd, “How many of you think you could have done it for less?” His question was greeted with silence, so he moved on. “I’m a negotiator, like you folks,” he said while discussing what he considers to be the failures of the recent nuclear deal struck with Iran.

“Is there anyone in this room who doesn’t negotiate deals?” he later asked. “Probably more than any room I’ve ever spoken.” You know — because it’s full of Jews.

Shabbat shalom everyone…

  1. It’s like watching outtakes from the movie “Bulworth”, only not.

    Now that’s what I like to to see, an equal-opportunity bigot. Is there any nationality, ethic group, small religious cult… that he has missed? Wait, I think he’s missed Scientology.

    On the other hand, the rest of the world is watching in somewhat bemused horror as the USA seems to be descending into madness.
